End Of Year Reflection

Reflection time

This year I learned how to use ratios and to write a narrative.
An important decision I made this year was to make good decisions and be helpful to each other.
One goal I accomplished this year was to be at the expected level at reading.
This year I tried to be a better person by fixing my behavior and be better than last year.
My favorite memory from this year was when we did the ultimate school day.
The funniest thing that happened this year was when Mrs Melville’s puppy's came to our classroom for a short visit.

Probability With Yahtzee

My Reflection

I was learning to use probability with Yahtzee and find out what is likely to happen.

It was easy because the probability and the game that I played before for 4 years so I know all of the rules of the game too, it was easy to work out the probability but the working out was hard to do.     

My next step is to do more of probability questions and do it consistency.

Term 4 Week 6

The Weekend

On Saturday, me and my mum went to The cat lounge in Glenfield. It takes 1 hour from the city to the cat lounge and it is New Zealand first cat cafe in history. 

When we got there we had an hour until we get to see the cats so I got a hot chocolate, then when I finished the hot chocolate I read a book about cats, and the cats in the book were so cute, then it was time to go in to see the cats.

When I went in I sore a white small kitten and it was sleeping in the sun outside so I picked it up and it was still sleeping and it was so soft in my arms, we have an hour with the cats and that is a lot of time to play with the cute cats.

Time past and it was time to go so we got out of the cute kitten area and then went home, and I had lots of fun with the cute cats and I wish I get to play with them again some time.

Polar Bear

My Reflection

I am learning to use implicit and explicit in the book.
I thought it was easy because explicit is it tells you directly and implicit is it tells you some of the information in the book.
My next step is to use more implicit and explicit.

Narrative Task

The three little ninjas.

Once upon a time there was Three Little Ninjas, they all had their own individual names, one was called Jordan he was the oldest, the next Ninja was called Jackson which was the second oldest and finally the youngest was called Jamie.  One day they moved to the Pink Ninja Forest and they built there dojo there.  One week after, they encountered The Big Fat Wolf.

My Reflection

I am learning to write a narrative.

I had to watch a video then to read some examples then think of the fairy tales that I know, next I had to complete the frame and make my story that I choose the three little pigs and then I change it into the three little ninjas and I change the big bad wolf in to the big fat wolf and the setting is instead of the forest I change it into the pink ninja forest and the three little pigs had to bulled a house out of stone, straw and bricks but now they live to together in a dojo in stead of living apart.
I thought it was hard because I didn't have time to do it and it was hard so then I gave it a try and I got far on this narrative task too.

My next step is to learn more about narratives and write my own narrative.

Puppet Pals

My Reflection.

We have been learning to read out loud using expression.
We need to look at the punctuation to help us use expression.
When there is an exclamation mark we make it sound louder and interesting. We read a play to practise and then recorded it on puppet pals.
I found this easy because it was a bit hard but I still got thrught it.
My next step is to read with more expression.

Learning About Explanation Writing

My Reflection

I have been learning about explanation writing. I now know that explanation writing tells about how something works. I found the quiz tricky because it was a bit hard to do but i got some right.
My next step is to write my own explanation.

Compering Fractions

How do you compare fractions with like numerators?, if the number was 2/4 

and 3/8, if you have a look at the top number you can see that 3/8 is the 

biggest number then 2/4 and that is how you compare fractions with 


How do you compare fractions with like denominators?, if it was 10/6 and 

8/5 you can see that 10 is bigger than 8 so 10/6 is better than 8/5 a that is 

how you compere fractions with denominator's.

How do you compare fractions with different numerators and denominators?,

if it was 4/3 and 5/7 so 4 x 1/3 and 5 x 1/7 so let's start with 4 x 1/3 = 4/3

and 5 x 1/7 = 5/7 so 5/7 is the biggest number then 4/3 and 4/3 is the 

smallest number and that is how you compare fractions with different 

numerators and denominators.

My Reflection

I was leaning to compare fractions with denominators and numerators.  I found this tricky because sometimes it was a bit confusing.  My next step is to keep learning about this.

My Maths Presentation

IWLHT use addition and subtraction and strategies.

I prefer place value because it is the easiest thing in the maths presentation that I made.

the thing that I got stuck was nothing.

The Chapter Book Venn Diagram

Our Reflection

I was learning to identify character traits and to compare character based on these traits. 

I had to look for physical ,emotional,social and all of the stuff that they did.

The hardest traits to find were the social !

Because the author did not put in some of the social stuff in the book.

The easiest traits were the other because the author puts some of it in the book and he or her thought of the character.
